Champion generators prices and installation cost

In our estimation, the average cost for a Champion whole home generator is approximately $5,500 to even $15,000. These figures are just averages, and your specific costs may be higher or lower depending on the type of generator you get and specific installation requirements.

However, we can tell you that your generator costs will depend on the following factors:

  • Size – A larger house generator has a higher total cost due to its materials and the additional costs of installation.
  • Accessories – Transfer switches, covers, inlet boxes, cords and cables may add to your unit’s cost.
  • Wattage – Power output typically correlates with the generator size you buy, and higher wattage will cost more.
  • Size of storage tanks – If you live in an area that gets violent weather or frequent or prolonged power outages, you may need larger storage tanks to power your home backup generator. This might raise the cost.
  • Access to the unit – If getting the unit in place is tricky, if it needs a crane or other heavy involvement to install, the price will go up. This usually occurs when the generator is tucked in a tight space behind a house where vehicles cannot fit. The complexity of hooking the generator up to your sub-panel and grid-supplied electricity will also factor in.
